This is an awesome list. This is definitely one worth bookmarking to come back to. There are just so many ways to make money these days, especially with the internet. I especially like #38, and would even recommend taking it a step further and creating your own stock photo site. If you’re able to take a ton of photos, you can put them on your website too and have people choose how much they want to pay. Sure, you’ll have a lot of people that use them for free, but you’ll also get some people happy to pay a decent amount of change. It’s actually something I’m considering doing myself. I just have to get a decent camera. 🙂
If you don’t mind doing other people’s chores, then TaskRabbit is a great option for making money online. Earn extra income by walking your neighbor’s dog or mowing Mr. Smith’s lawn. It might seem like not the most lucrative option, but the top taskers reportedly earn as much as $7000 a month, making this a full-time way to make money online for some.
Since coaching and consulting isn't a passive income stream and it actively requires my time, there's an opportunity cost for me in taking on clients. That opportunity cost is it takes away my time that I could spend on creating passive income streams. That's why I'm in a position where I can charge whatever I want if people want my 1-on-1 help. As I grow and make even more money, I will be forced to continue to raise my rates, as whatever I'm charging now won't be worthwhile enough for me to take on clients at.
Just like to add 1 additional “CON” to the list of Pros and Cons of Clickbank. Their rule on paying out the commissions earned. You must have 5 sales all from different credit card accounts before they will pay you what you have earned. That flat out sucks!. Affiliates work hard to get even 1 sale and because of Clickbanks rule, lose that money over time if they cannot get another 4 sales, the commission keeps reducing steadily if 4 more sales are not forthcoming. Clickbank has got to change that rule, which many feel is illegal!. A sale, is a sale, and the commission must be paid out. Basically, Clickbank is “Ripping-Off” affiliate marketers.
Once you sign up to become an affiliate with ClickBank, you will immediately be able to browse the different products available to sell. ClickBank has tens of thousands of products available, so in the beginning it's helpful to search by niche and commission percentage until you locate offers that you want to promote. Make sure you take the time to look at the vendor's sales page before promoting their product. They might be offering a 75% commission rate, but if their website doesn't look trustworthy or put together you aren't going to generate many sales, no matter how much traffic you drive their way.
I don’t try to sell too much. All you need to do is to drive value and give good information to the buyer. Put yourself in the shoes of the buyer and address their fears and questions. Don’t beat around the bush and don’t try to waste their time and at the end, try showing some sort of proof or results. If you own the product, show what’s inside and talk about your experience with it. This will help you to build a relationship with them quickly.
Totally awesome Gael. Thank you so much for sharing. Yes, the per-engagement presell sequence strategy is the way to go in 2015 – pulling folk in with front end value content building that all important relationship factor and enticing them to opt in for more…, then offering them a solution at a lower price as it’s the first offer on TY page…and then promoting the opt in throughout your posts starting out with the problem, then turning it into finding the solution (as you have done above, lol!), plus Outbrain to LINK relative content, AND get affiliates on board + repeat with many blog posts and many offers, specially ads via FB and Pinterest Pin posts – man this is a powerful win-win. Makes SO much sense to me – am doing this right from NOW…Will be following your CB success and I’ll report back mine… R.
Surveys aren’t the best way to make money fast. But there’s a certain appeal to clicking a few buttons and earning money when you’d otherwise be doing nothing. Here’s our recommendation: Sign up for these legitimate survey sites all at once. Chances are, you’ll qualify for at least one or two surveys on each site a month, and the rewards will add up.
Don't take that as a green light to rush over to CB. Though you can still make money on Clickbank as I have demonstrated here today, it's not any easier than any other affiliate marketing setup. There's a lot of useless stuff on CB, and if you're not sure what to promote, it can be hard to find exactly what you want. Part of why I don't promote CB products anymore is because many of them are junk and I've never found a good one that's in a niche I'm interested in.
If you have ever visited document sharing websites such as Script Mafia, you must have seen how people offer you free downloads and others queue up with alternative download mirrors. Every time someone downloads using your link from file sharing websites such as Ziddu, Uploading and ShareCash.org (it claims to pay average $0.60 per download), you get paid.
I also realized that there's many people that can't afford to work with me 1-on-1, but still want to receive value from me, get their questions answered and receive feedback and advice. That's why I decided to create a Group Coaching Mastermind. This has allowed me to take on a group of people and coach them every two weeks in a webinar session where they can ask me questions and receive feedback. This was another way of leveraging myself while giving people something that they wanted and was valuable.
Can you recognize a good deal when you see one? Then, consider buying merchandise to resell on eBay. Or, try other sites like Amazon. Garage sales and thrift stores are full of obscure items. Often, people don’t know how valuable they are. Therefore, they sell them for less than what they’re worth. As a result, you can buy them for a discount and make a large profit.
–>There’s a lot of flexibility in group coaching. I only offer programs at certain times of the year. What’s nice about that is that I can take downtime in between and not be beholden to clients, and I can also deliver the programs from anywhere, as long as I keep timezones in mind when I plan my travels :). Tools like Facebook have made group coaching communities instantly accessible at any time, so I can have folks all over the world participate in my group programs and get feedback when they need it.
The Internet is too big to explore alone. So you take help of search engine, but they have their own limitations. You can create directory websites which provide lists of products or websites in a particular segment. For example, you can create a directory of free WordPress themes. Create a list of websites and sources related to a particular niche. You can sell ad space to advertisers directly or using networks such as AdSense and BuySellAds.
